We give advice to landowners whose property are situated within a veld, forest area or Wildland Urban Interface Zones. Fire prevention is one of the main goals of the SCFPA. Landowners have certain duties and responsibilities which are stipulated in the National Veld and Forest Fire Act 101 of 1998. We provide the necessary advice to landowners and other neighboring landowners. We also react as a supportive role in suppressing fires.
The SCFPA is managed by an executive committee which is represented by role-players from various forms of land use practice within the Southern Cape namely: farming, organised forestry, conservation, together with various local government departments and parastals. Funds which are generated by the SCFPA through the collection of membership fees and fund raising are used specifically within the SCFPA domain.
